Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007 netscape 7

I sent this to the Licensing dept at Mozilla and they suggested that I submit it
here.

Please look at
http://www.usda.gov/wps/portal/!ut/p/_s.7_0_A/7_0_1OB?contentidonly=true&contentid=Help_Technical_Requirements.xml

or www.usda.gov  >  Help  >  Techology Requirements.

The site implies that Mozilla may be less standards-compliant than the browsers
they are supporting.  Even tho' it may be legitimate for them to say that
certain browsers work better for their site, they can't say it's because others
aren't compliant.

Since I'm not in a position to bring this to their attention with any effect, I
hope you'll have your lawyers write to their lawyers about it.  I'm sure you
won't need to mention my email address either.

(The site does in fact work fine in Mozilla - I just think they've no business
making comments which are not only deroggatory but not true).

Matti, did you ever hear anything back from them? They've still got the same comment there.
OS: Windows XP → All
Hardware: x86 → All
I can't remember if I got a response. I think I got one that they will change the site but I'm not sure and they didn't change it.
